Tremper Mountain

On July 25th, I headed down to Tremper Mountain in the Catskill Mountains. This was my third hike down in the Catskills as part of the Fire Tower Challenge. The hike up was a three mile climb but wasn’t overly steep. Arriving at the summit, I ran into the summer steward and had a lengthy conversation with him about the tower and the surrounding mountains. He even showed me some cool gear that fire observers used while they were in service. Overall a good hike.
